The Rimmel Maxi Blush collection launched back in 2018, but I never picked any of the shades up as they looked a little boring in all honesty. Rimmel always have super plain and boring packaging, compared to the likes of Essence, Revolution and L’Oreal, but I love a good matte blush, so I decided to give one a try.
Rimmel Maxi Blush
The Rimmel Maxi Blush is available in a total of five matte shades, which are mostly quite bold and bright. I chose the shade 004 Sweet Cheeks which is the lightest, most muted shade, and they’re £5.99 each with 9 grams of product which is a lot of blush for your money. Especially compared to the XX Revolution XXcess Blush, which are £10 each and only contain 3.2g of product.
“Want the London look? Maxi Blush’s lightweight, powder formula gives cheeks a burst of colour and healthy looking glow.
Whether you’re at the office, out shopping, or partying until the early hours, Maxi Blush’s pigmented formula delivers colour that lasts. Apply with powder brush over foundation or on bare skin. The micro-fine powders blend easily and provide buildable results.“
Sweet Cheeks is the perfect matte peach, with a buildable formula allowing you to go as sheer and as intense as you’d like. The other four shades are mostly pinks, so it’d be nice for them to launch more shades as they do look quite similar. If you like MAC Melba Powder Blush, the formula of this blush is similar, except Sweet Cheeks is a little more orange in comparison.
If you applied a MAC blush on one cheek, and the Rimmel Maxi Blush on the other, you wouldn’t be able to tell them apart in terms of formula as they are so comparable, and they’re just £5.99 each.
